Mohanlal to team with Android Kunjappan director Ratheesh Balakrishnan Poduval?
For the last few months, there has been a buzz about Mohanlal joining hands with ‘Android Kunjappan’ director Ratheesh Balakrishnan Poduval. The buzz just got strengthened as producer Santhosh T Kuruvila of Moonshot Entertainment shared a photo taken with Mohanlal and Ratheesh in his social media handle. Fans are eagerly waiting for the official word as they are excited to see a fresh combo.
Before making his directorial debut with ‘Android Kunjappan’, Ratheesh Balakrishnan had worked as a production designer in Bollywood films like ‘Force’, ‘Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota’ and ‘Badhaai Ho’. His maiden directorial was a big success, both critically and commercially. The film’s theme of human-robot interaction was the first of its kind in Malayalam and it struck a chord with all sections of the audience. It will be really interesting to see what the director comes up with if he gets to work with a superstar like Mohanlal.
Mohanlal is currently shooting for ‘Ram’ directed by Jeethu Joseph. Though it was expected that his ambitious directorial ‘Barroz’ would start rolling after the completion of ‘Ram’, it seems highly unlikely owing to the extensive pre-production works that the film demands. Mohanlal might have free dates after ‘Ram’, so chances of him doing a film with Ratheesh cannot be dismissed as such. Producer Santosh T Kuruvilla is also close to both of them. So let’s hope the trio is coming together and an official announcement is made soon.
